Although Manuka essential oil is relatively new to aromatherapy, the plant has been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments by the Maoris of New Zealand. It is sometimes referred to as the "New Zealand Tea Tree" due to the remarkable similarities in therapeutic actions. Botanically, the Manuka is a small evergreen shrub that grows between 3 to 6 feet high. It has arching branches with small and narrow aromatic leaves. Depending on the variety, the flowers can be white, pink or red and bloom in small clusters around the leaves twice a year. Manuka essential oil is extracted from the leaves by steam distillation, and the quality of which is dependent on the altitude at which the plant is cultivated. Higher altitudes produce far better essential oils than that from lower altitudes.

Manuka essential oil is a great treatment for skin afflictions. It can be used on cuts, boils and wounds to speed up the healing process. It can also be used in the treatment of acne and other oily skin conditions. Manuka is best used diluted, as it does tend to have a drying effect, especially when used over a long period of time.
